AMES – In an effort to provide continuing education to Iowa’s beef producers, the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association will hold educational forums in Sioux Center and Carroll.

The two events are:

1). ICA will partner with the Iowa Beef Center and ISU Extension to offer a Feedlot Forum from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m Jan. 19 at the Terrace View Event Center, in Sioux Center.

This event will focus on defending agriculture, sustainability, competitiveness, antimicrobial usage and profitability.

The cost to attend is $25 and $10 for students. Registrations are due Tuesday at the ISU Extension office in Sioux County.

2). Another feedlot forum is set from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 20 at the Carrollton Inn, in Carroll.

This event will offer a market outlook and discussion on the fast-approaching Veterinary Feed Directive.

Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to area producers share their environmental compliance stories and learn from state officials the state’s response plan during a Foreign Animal Disease outbreak.

The event is free and includes lunch.

Contact ICA at (515) 296-2266 to RSVP.

ICA will also hold pasture walks and other educational events around the state later this year in order to provide each segment of the cattle industry information on critical topics to them.
